THE SANDYGATE INN 

The Sandygate Inn is one of the oldest pubs in Kingsteignton and can trace its origins back to at least 1675 when the cartographer John Ogilby recorded it on his map of Devonshire. Mr Ogilby’s map showed the main routes across the county and these remained largely unchanged when the Bowen brothers published a similar map in 1753. Neither map noted the establishment as The Sandygate Inn but noted it under the name of  Tom the Trumpeter.

 

The inn is located on the route of a former Roman Road which in later centuries served as the main road from Dartmouth to Exeter via Newton Bushel. Its position on this route made it ideal as a stop off for coaches plying between the aforementioned towns. This could explain the origin of the name Tom the Trumpeter and hark back to the days when a coachman blew his trumpet as the coach set off on the next leg of its journey.  Another explanation could be that the pub was founded by a retired soldier who had been a trumpeter. Whatever the origin of the name it is safe to assume that the inn had been operating some years before Mr Ogilby drew his map and a link with the former name of the pub has been kept down the years with its inn sign showing a soldier blowing a trumpet.

 

DOG FRIENDLY

Welcome

The Sandygate Inn is a  warm and friendly old 'village' pub that reopened in January 2016. The lounge bar has beamed ceilings and a large open fireplace, if you sit either side of it, it is for you to put the logs on!

 

The public bar is small and cosy and has a TV. There is also small family room, together with a comfortable dining room.

 

At the rear of the premises is large walled garden and, there is also a tabled patio area at the front, which affords lovely views of Haytor and Dartmoor in the distance. We have a large carpark and, is only a 4 minute walk down a lane, from Five Lanes bus stop.
